I saw it last night. Thank you to Cinerama, for finding me a seat when I showed up on Tuesday with a ticket for Wednesday. Oops. (It was sold out, but there were actually quite a lot of empty seats.)

I laughed, I cried (twice), I cheered, I gasped, I even screamed once (you can guess where, and I suspected something really awful was coming). I fucking loved it.

That ending! I thought they weren't filming on Skellig Michael until the second movie, but that last scene is definitely the island. Hellloooo, Ireland! (Still on my list to visit that spot. I tried in 2013, but weather stopped the boats from going. So disappointed.)

Also, shallowly:

Oscar Isaac can get it.

Harrison Ford can still get it.

Adam Driver might be able to get it. I'm strangely attracted to him, although I'll never be able to not see him as creepy dude from Girls. I thought he was really good in this.

Admiral Ackbar can't still get it? He looked pretty good for 30 years older.

Also saw it last night and was thoroughly entertained. Sure, there are some plot holes/inconsistencies (e.g.: yeah, I'm the badass female commander of the Stormtroopers, and sure, I'll totally deactivate the shields without a hint of struggle because a kid is pointing a gun at me) and yeah, it's a little derivative, but it was lovingly crafted, and it felt like a real, lived in universe and not some squeaky clean cgi creation a la the prequels. Also, it had a sense of fun that was sorely lacking in the last 3 efforts.

I'm pumped to see where the next installments take us.

It's the natural omega-3 fatty acids in his skin.

Too orange. If I wanted an orange dude, I'd date John Boehner. Or an Oompa Loompa. Probably the Oompa Loompa.

All of this.

That's the closest I got, posing with them in the distance. (Only behind a tag because it's kind of huge.)

 
I CAN SEE LUKE!

I've seen it twice thus far, the 2nd in IMAX 3D at the Chinese Theater. I unequivocally love it.

It's just a thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi/action film, that also has enough secrets to keep me thinking about it for almost a week now. Yes, it's derivative, but it still manages to be fresh. I honestly didn't mind Death Star 3.0, but I do hope that's the last we see of it.

 
Han's death was necessary but still makes me very sad. He did however, have a fantastic last film. He was great throughout.


What I'm curious about is why Kylo Ren turned? With Anakin, you got it. He was seduced by the dark side out of trying to protect his loved ones. With Kylo, he honestly reminds me of whiny Luke.
 
If you'd told me he was Luke's kid, not Han and Leia's, I'd have believed it.


I really am looking forward to seeing where this story goes and I'm actually motivated to start reading some of the associated books.

My current rankings:
V
IV
VII
III
VI

Big gulf

II
I

My theory: Rey is Obi Wans granddaughter. You hear Rwanda macgregor and briefly Guinness's voice in the flashback.

Plus the English accent
